I've had several "lockups" recently on -current. :-) On my i386 (with ddb)
the 'ps' shows a number of things (like cpp/make) waiting on
'getnewb' (getnewbuf?) and I am able to still ping the box.  While it
was still working normally, I dropped into ddb and 'ps' didn't show
anything in the 'getnewb' state.

I am using soft dependencies on all of the local filesystems (/, /usr)
and they are *not* full. :)

If this is not an already known issue, I can collect more information
and send-pr it.
